Blue Ash, OH – Police bodycam captured the moment a rape and kidnapping suspect ricocheted off the reinforced glass window of a hotel room on Sunday as he tried to flee from officers (video below).
The incident occurred on Nov. 21 at the Quality Hotel Conference Center Cincinnati Blue Ash in the 5900-block of Pfeiffer Road, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Charging documents said that the victim told police 20-year-old Onjre Damon George struck her multiples times and left visible bruises on her head and body.
She also told officers that George stopped her from calling 911 and also unplugged the phone in the hotel room, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Charging documents said the woman accused George of choking her until she became unconscious.
The woman told police that when she was finally able to leave the hotel room, George stayed close to her, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
She told police she tried to catch the eye of another hotel guest to get help but eventually made eye contact with a hotel employee at the front desk, according to court documents.
The front desk clerk called the police and requested a welfare check after the couple garnered her attention, FOX News reported.
“She stated she noticed a male and female and that the female looked unwell,” according to the police report. “She stated she was discreetly able to ask the female if she was okay and the female used body language to indicate that something was wrong.”
The employee told police she had mouthed “do you need help?” at the woman and the women nodded yes, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
When officers responded to the hotel, the first thing they did was separate the couple and interview the woman, FOX News reported.
George returned to the room while the victim was talking to the police, and then officers went to the hotel room to talk to him, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Bodycam video showed an officer asked George what happened between him and the woman and he denied that there had been a problem.
The officer turned George around as if to detain him and the suspect began to flex, the video showed.
“Don’t tense up man,” the officer told George.
That was when George broke free and made a dash for the hotel window, the video showed.
He took off at a sprint toward the back of the hotel room and the video showed the officer asked “where you going?” just as George hurled his body against the reinforced plate glass.
George screamed when his body ricocheted off the hotel room’s window, the video showed.
The officers could be heard chuckling on the bodycam.
“Look, I’m about to jump. I’m about to jump,” George threatened when the officer started to approach him with his Taser drawn, the video showed.
“Don’t Tase me, don’t Tase me,” the suspect begged in the bodycam before the audio was silenced.
The rest of the video appeared to show George complied with officers’ commands to get down on the floor, and then he was put into handcuffs and arrested.
George was charged with assault, kidnapping, and rape and booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
He was held at the facility in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
George was arraigned on Monday and scheduled to go before a grand jury on Dec. 1, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Blue Ash Police Chief Scott Noel told reporters the incident was not a random kidnapping.
Chief Noel said that the pair knew each other and had a relationship in the past, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
